    Thoughts on these builds for Premiere Pro 4K editing system <$4000

    Stephen.Pickering

      Hi there,


      I have two system builds below (assembled with pcpartpicker).

       

      I would like to build a new 4K editing system before the end of the year.  I would like to edit 4K (delivery will more often be in HD), use Neat Video noise removal, grade with Lumetri Color and MB Looks in Premiere Pro CC.  I would also like to do chroma keying, motion graphics, and light 3D work (extruded text, Element 3D) in After Effects.

       

      Ideally, my budget is $4,000 but would be nice to have some left over.  I have the following parts already purchased from a previous build that never happened:
      Phanteks Enthoo Pro Series PH-ES614P_BK Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

      XPG SX6000 PCIe NVME Gen3x2 M.2 2280 128GB SSD
      Keyboard
      Mouse
      Optical Drive
      Several HGST 6TB NAS drives
      Some CineRaid 4x Raid Enclosures (USB3 or eSata) (are these even usable with 4K?)
      Monitors (not 4K)

       

      I've always used Intel, but I've read a lot of posts here about Ryzen being an option now.  I've put together two systems at pcpartpicker, one Intel and one Ryzen.  These are based on some different builds that I've found on forums (the Intel system is similar to a build I found on PugetSystems).

      Honestly, I don't know a whole lot about hardware anymore.  Both systems above are under my budget, which makes me feel that either I am missing something or that I should be upgrading something now instead of later.  Both builds have the case included, but I already have a case).  I would love to stay at $3k, but I want to have a system that will last me longer, instead of a budget system that I'll have to try to upgrade down the road.

       

      I would appreciate any advice you have!
